Dec. 20 fire displaces eight from home in Sudley

Prince William County fire and rescue units were dispatched to the 10300 block of Lomond Drive (Sudley)  at 1:22 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2022 for a report of a single-family dwelling on fire. Crews arrived with fire showing and all occupants safely out of the home, according to Matt Smolsky, assistant fire chief.

Smolsky said the occupants awoke from a popping sound and shortly afterwards the home’s smoke detectors activated. The fire was located in a bedroom left vacant earlier in the evening. The home sustained extensive damage. No injuries were reported. The structure was determined to be unsafe to occupy by the Building Official. The American Red Cross responded to assist the five adults and three children displaced. The Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire, said Smolsky, who also serves as Fire Marshal.

The Fire Marshal’s Office encourages all homes to be equipped with smoke detectors. Detectors provide the best means to provide you and your family the ability to quickly detect and safely escape from a home fire. Check your batteries regularly to ensure proper operation.
